Lou Ros, 26, began painting at the age of 17. Based in Paris, France, he started with graffiti for fun with friends which soon became a real addiction to him. Learning to paint without going through an art school, Lou felt the limits of his street art, admitting himself that:
There is an ethics of aesthetic beauty and repetition that eventually bores me. Painting beautiful is boring, while making a painting that has strength is quite another thing. So I started painting at home.
His art represents the visible and not so visible worlds. With paint brush in his hands colors fly, dance and rejoice with pleasure and passion.
Here comes the third and last part of the watercolor series by Alexander Votsmush.
This is by far the most impressive watercolor artwork that I’ve seen. The artist is nothing but a genius and a living legend. I never have seen or experienced his kind of watercolour on paper which is full of life, energy, depth, narrative and humour in some cases. It is impossible to fully put down feelings into words. Votsmush’s grip on the medium, mood, subject and overall context in every single piece is mesmerising making you feel as if it is not painted on paper with a paint brush but with a magical wand.
Alex Votsmush lives partly in Russia and partly in Ukraine. I wanted to share more here about him but due to the language barrier I had to confine myself to what I could get from him.
I wasn’t able to fit Votsmush’s work into one post therefore covering it into three separate posts so keep watching the space.
